My OpenERP server (HTTP, port 80) runs on a VM behind an Apache reverse proxy (HTTPS, port 443). Both the web interface and Python using xmlrpclib work without problems.
Unfortunately, the Thunderbird plugin does not connect to the server. It says:
Server unreachable or login Failed, please check your connection settings
The server name in the plugin is correct, the port number (443) is correct, username and password are correct. I tried both XML-RPC and XML-RPCS.
Is there anything I have to configure in either in OpenERP server or the plugin?
OK, it works now:
I tried with XML-RPC on port 80 instead XML-RPCS on port 443, which works, but cannot be used in production, of course.
I added the self-signed certificate of the server explicitely with the used server name to the trusted certificates of Thunderbird - now it works with XML-RPCS as well!
It is funny, because Thunderbird already trusted this certificate, but for arbitrary addresses. It seems to be important to add the server name that is actually used, too.
